Does the significant price drop of the 24-70 f/2.8L II give an indication that an IS version is coming soon???

I think we will see a 24-70 F2.8 Image Stabilizer before 2015.

I get upset when I see such prices. ??? In my country, you can never find 24-70 F2.8 II for less than $ 2900, and you can never find 100mm L for less than $ 1500. :-[ Canon should make promotional prices in all countries, not just the richest of all. :-X

Considering all the videographer business Canon is losing to Tamron, I think delivering on one of the four patented 24-70 f/2.8 IS designs they filed years ago sometime in 2014 would be a wise move.

For wedding videographers, Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 VC > Canon 24-105 F/4 IS > Canon 24-70 F/4 IS > Canon 24-70 f/2.8 II.  Canon needs a 24-70 2.8 IS lens to beat the Tamron with this staple photo/videography group.

While the 24-70 f/2.8 II is an extremely sharp lens, it fails to meet the needs of many with its lack of IS in its up to 70mm focal length, especially in its astronomical price range.

Canon needs to release a 24-70 f/2.8 IS for ~$2299, and permanently drop the 24-70 f/2.8 II to $1699 without needing rebates.

The 100 mm f/2.8 macro IS at BuyDig is $899, not $758. I went ahead and purchased it anyway, but am disappointed. :(

You pay $899 at time of purchase, but you can still do the $150 mail-in rebate.
